The Filipino American Women’s Organization of Yakima Valley celebrated the group’s fourth anniversary on April 6 at a gala at the Yakima Arboretum. Over 200 family members and friends gathered for a potluck, a talk on women’s health by Dr. Hipolito M. Custodio, information on Typhoon Yolanda, and entertainment by dancers.

The 85-member group provides support, service, and education to the Filipino American community of the Yakima Valley. (end)
